Georgia:
Tbilisi

Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia, lying on the banks of the Kura River. It was founded in 5th century AD.

Photos of Tbilisi's lanterns were taken in October 1974 and kept on slides. When several years ago we started scanning slides, we found that many of them have deteriorated, some even ruined, so quality of the pictures is not very good.

When it was possible, we checked the locations with Google Street View and put information in the photo caption about present conditions or existence of the lantern. A lantern is marked with (?) if we could not confirm its existence or conditions. If there is no note, it means that the lantern exists and has not changed.
